Couthie bakes lovely cookies – but our website employs small text files that are placed on your machine to help our techies provide a better overall experience.
Our cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping carts, and provide tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics, which we use to get website stats and get a richer picture of our users in general. This is a bit like your telephone provider gathering stats about your telephone usage. What you want to know is that we don’t do anything nefarious with data, like sell it. Our google analytics is a free service, and we understand that they may gather some data that you would rather they didn’t. We give them the benefit of the doubt, as their motto is “do no evil”.
